LIVINGSTON, NJ — CareOne at Livingston Assisted Living is partnering with the Mallory’s Army Charitable Foundation to host an anti-bullying seminar on Thursday entitled “Bullying Through the Ages” with the purpose of educating the public about the dangers of bullying while also raising money for the “Blue Out Bullying” movement.
Mallory’s Army, a non-profit organization whose mission is to raise funds to fight bullying, was formed by the Grossman family after 12-year-old Mallory Rose Grossman of Rockaway took her own life due to an experience with excessive bullying. Mallory was described by loved ones as being compassionate, athletic and loving.
“As soldiers of Mallory’s Army, we are proud to present this informative and educational evening in an effort to Blue Out Bullying while also raising money for this powerful movement,” CareOne at Livingston wrote about the upcoming event. “Together we can make a difference.”
Event highlights will include educational workshops about self-defense, cyber bullying, legal advice and more; a special continuing education opportunity for nurses, social workers, LNHAs and CALAs entitled “Bullying and Practical Interventions”; and a cocktail/networking reception for guests.
“We must educate prior to school starting,” Mallory’s Army posted on Facebook encouraging teachers, parents and administrators to attend. “Waiting till your kid is a victim is too late.”
The $25 entry fee includes two workshops plus tricky tray tickets with the option to purchase additional tickets. All proceeds will go toward the Mallory’s Army Charitable Foundation. RSVP to AEscobarSalazar@care-one.com at 973-739-9490. Click HERE to learn more.
